Procedure for A.C.T.


Use the guidelines of the (pink) PA GUIDETO GETTING THINGS DONE AT DMMS.

The ACT form does supercede some of the points on that form.


1. Coaches and Teams

Teams should participate in filling out the ACT form. Coach approval is assumed on an ACT form.


2. School Authority Approval

Teams and coaches should go first to the teacher liaisons. Teacher liaisons will decide if principal needs to be contacted.


3. Turning in the ACT form

Forms should be turned in ONLY to Chris Boyce the PA coordinator.

The Principal, Teacher Liaisons, Mentors, Dr. Kunkel should not accept the forms.

Mr. Boyce will make a copy for the PA files and put a copy in the team box. Team should keep their copy of the form.


4. Using and Improving the ACT

We invite feedback and suggestions on how to improve the form and process. This process does not guarantee there will be no mix-ups or problems.


5. Money

Coaches and teams should not hold onto funds any longer than necessary. Any cash raised should be turned over to Mr. Boyce who record a deposit and will keep it safely in an envelope in the PA treasury. We may deposit larger amounts in the PA checking account. Coaches and teams should deal with Mr. Boyce for withdrawals. Money not used for its purpose at the end of the PA year will become part of the PA general treasury.
